Craig Burnett

Guy next door, non-announcer, hard sell and soft sell.

Voice Description

Craig Burnett's guy-next-door, regular-guy voice is perfect for any type of voiceover you need: corporate, energetic, dramatic, loud and obnoxious, or soft and gentle. Craig can tell stories, sell Direct Response products, or educate your listeners. He can be instructive without being boring, entertaining without being over-the-top (unless that's what you want). For documentaries, narration, commercials, technical documents, VOG (voice of God) for live conferences, corporate promotional videos, video news releases, online training, Flash videos, movie trailers. Low and deep, high and squeaky, Western cowboy characters, military drill sergeant, educational videos, stadium announcer, newscaster, hotel property tours, real estate listings, website intros, new inventions, demonstrations, investor videos, midrange, or just "regular guy testimonial." Even animation clients have used Craig to bring out the life in their characters. The best way to find out if Craig's voice is right for your project, is to have him do a demo. His 30 years of directing talent AND being the talent himself, give him a unique insight into how to deliver exactly what you need with every project. Need an expert on-camera? Craig does that, too. You may check his demos at website He has his own insert studio and can email custom video demos anytime...just ask!
